Research Is Now Being Done as to Whether Dogs Can Be Used to Detect COVID-19

May 18, 2020

Could dogs be used -- at some point in the future -- to effectively "sniff out" COVID-19 among human beings infected with the virus? We don't know. But research is now being done in various labs to explore this question. On this edition of ST Medical Monday, we get an update from journalist Maria Goodavage, whose previous books include "Soldier Dogs: The Untold Story of America's Canine Heroes" and "Top Dog: The Story of Marine Hero Lucca." She actually spoke with us about six months ago, when her latest book was published. That fascinating book is "Doctor Dogs: How Our Best Friends Are Becoming Our Best Medicine," and it will appear in paperback in the fall.
